After six silver medals and one bronze across all disciplines at the world championships, Anna van der Breggen (Netherlands) finally took gold at the UCI Road World Championships and will wear the rainbow jersey next season.

Van der Breggen followed Marc Kirschi (Switzerland) in Austria, who won the under-23 men's race, by winning the world championship title racing on a disc brake-equipped bike.

Van der Breggen became the Olympic champion in 2016, with her custom-painted Specialized S-Works Tarmac Disc commemorating the victory with a gold design overlaid onto a black metallic base coat.

The Specialized is paired with finishing kit and components from SRAM, Zipp and Quarq.

A gearing combination of 53/39 and 11-30 was used by Van der Breggen on the hilly world's course in Austria.
